These pieces by Tara Donovan are both minuscule and immense! As always, I love to see small objects put together to create something huge, but even cooler that the small objects are so normal – buttons, pencils, styrofoam cups… That stuff never ceases to amaze me. See many more of her pieces here.
I love these brightly colored frames that TotallyJuliaRAd paints. So clever! I love the old ornate frames with such eye-popping colors! She sticks illustrations from children’s books in them for the pictures. I think I feel a DIY coming on…
Can you believe this graffiti? It’s called ‘fire-tagging’ and the way it’s apparently done is the artist writes their signature in lighter fluid and then sets the area aflame. Well for a moment anyway, presumably they put the fire right back out, he he! It looks awesome! Reminds me of those high-school days playing with hair-spray and a lighter on the pavement…

Okay, so there is no way I could have come up with a post for these two shots, but I just couldn’t resist sharing them with you, so we have this random post!
First of all, this tax-form dress is awesome! Read more about the creator here.
That, and I’m in love with this little guy…
Isn’t he sweet? Our graphic designer Kevin found this little cross-eyed Brussels Griffon on Flickr, with Keeping one eye on you as the caption. What a doll!!
This installation by Marieke van der Bruggen is really interesting, and really pretty! All the hanging twigs, branches and leaves are made out of colored glucose – in other words, they’re basically hanging lollipops, and visitors to the installation are allowed to pick of parts of it and eat them. The show doesn’t open until next week though, and to boot it’s in Milan. But, if you do happen to be in Milan, you can check it out! It’s the Jewels and Joules show, being presented by the Design Connection Brainport and Design Academy Eindhoven. Sweet – literally!

These shots are from an interesting installation by Madrid-based art group Luzinterruptus. They took many plastic bags and affixed them to lights and sticks in the front yard of the Prado Museum in Madrid, creating a field of soft glowing lights. It’s cool to see plastic bags, which I often see flying around in the street outside my Philly apartment, used to create something that, in my opinion, looks really pretty!
I find these photos of an abandoned old junkyard in Switzerland really inspiring! I can’t put my finger on what I like so much about the pictures, but they’re just really appealing! The old cars are so beautiful, even, or maybe especially, with plants growing all over them! The whole set is really good, you can see it here.
